Mission Action Statement

Engaging in welcoming, pastoral care, faith formation for all ages, the sanctification of each other and the world and support of vocations (Laity and Ordained). Celebrating the richness of care and support for each other by providing service to the poor, homeless, refugees, the sick and bereaved and the elderly and working for social justice and the protection of the environment in union with all people of good faith.

Mission Statement

We welcome and journey with all through prayer and service, open to growth and committed to building a community of Christ’s disciples who share the joy of the Gospel.

Vision Statement

Holy Family Parish is an inclusive, welcoming community of members filled with The Holy Spirit where all are valued, respected and supported. Our faith in Jesus nourished by the Eucharist urges us to bring people to him and to form missionary disciples who will go out to transform the world.

AMID the bustle of an uncertain world around us, Brisbane Catholics are being invited to visit and experience a unique overseas mission.

The Missionaries of the Poor are calling for volunteers to visit and serve in their mission house in Labuan Bajo on the Indonesian island of Flores, and to assist in the daily care of disabled residents.

It might sound like a daunting task, however, in 2017 Fr Nev Yun, administrator at the Holy Family Catholic parish at Indooroopilly, led a small group on a nine-night visit to the MOP mission, and described the richness of the experience in terms of simplicity, gentleness and serving.

FINANCE COMMITTEE REPORT

For the Financial year ending 31/12/19,the parish enjoyed a modest financial surplus of $103721. However the Parish would have operated at a loss if it were not for rental income received from organizations such as Centacare, which provides outside School Hours Care.

Canonical approval was given for 2 major Capital works. The refurbishment of the Retaining wall and associated civil works will cost $140,000 and the sealing of the church drains an additional $76000. The funds for these projects will be provided from Holy Family reserves. Parishioners will appreciate that this has placed considerable strain on the parish to meet future planned and unplanned Capital Expenditure and maintenance projects. The continuing support from Parishioners is appreciated, and any increase would be gratefully received.

CATHOLIC EMERGENCY RELIEF AUSTRALIA

Special collections at Masses across the country on the Australia Day weekend have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to support people and communities affected by the devastating bushfires. This is one part of a multi-dimensional response of the Catholic community across the nation to the drama of the situation we face. Catholic Emergency Relief Australia (CERA) is a new collaboration of national Catholic organisations that will help coordinate the Church’s ongoing response to the bushfire crisis and future domestic natural disasters.

From Father Nev

16-2-20 – Parish Vision Arvo.

Hi all, thank you to everyone for your enthusiastic support and participation at last weekend’s World Marriage Day Mass and celebrations. Particular thanks to the committee: Rochelle, Ashwin, Jasline, Justin, Russ, Jan, Ben and Lolita. Those who helped bring food and serve in the kitchen and for Keith as MC. It looks like an event that will definitely be on next year’s calen-dar. On Sunday March 1st @ 2pm in the Morgan Howe Centre, we’ll be launching our Parish Vision Arvo. It’ll be an opportunity to hear what we did in 2019, I’ll be sharing the vision for 2020 and there will be an opportunity in small groups to give input and discuss what I have shared and provide feedback. All parishioners are welcome. This weekend I’m encouraging you all to think about nominating someone which can include yourself to consider serving a term on the Parish Pastoral Council. We’ll be handing out forms this weekend which will include what role the PPC plays in the Leadership of the Parish. We would like you send these back to the parish office or give them to myself. Anyone nominated we will invite along to the Parish Vision Arvo. This week we’ll be plugging the Lenten Program. Two different programs are being offered, so make sure you indicate this weekend your preference and what nights you’re available on the lecterns around the Church. We’ll need to order these this week. Also this weekend we’ll be talking MOP. Trevor requires specific donations to be packed in a container heading to Timor Leste. The supplies they require are new clothes for boys and girls (Sizes 4-12) and general school supplies. Of course cash donations can be deposited in the Well too. Thank you all for your continuous generosity in service to the parish, the wider community and Missionaries of the Poor.Blessings Fr Nev

By Dr. Peter VardyTHE REFORMATION TODAY: AN ECUMENICAL PERSPECTIVE 

2017 marks the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. Many historians consider the Reformation one of those epoch changing events in the history of the Western world. But what does it mean for people in Australia 500 years later? Was the Reformation just a series of pointless disputes which have little relevance to the church today? Or is the church today the living legacy of the Reformation, and if so, what does this mean for us? Join us as we ask these questions together.
